    This accident is the reason why I have an extra set of clothes in my boat during cool times.

    Very sad story but there is an upside. This accident changed the way a LOT of people go about safety on the water and will for sure save some lives. Sad it took a death to do that and I can't ever imagine being in that situation and living with that outcome. Very bad deal

    Prayers for those involved. After witnessing a boat accident last week, I understand how everything can go bad in mere seconds on the water.

    Still as tragic as the first as the day it happened. So many on here rushed to judgement when it was posted and glad to see the whole story being put out now to squash some of the speculation.

    That was a sad deal. You know the driver will live with it the rest of his life and might not be able to.
